Nice pic, James! I'm about 5 miles from there.  

It's still pounding. If you woke up and didn't know what day it was, you'd never believe it was Oct 20. My wife just texted that our entire neighborhood is without power. Power lines and broken tree limbs all over the place. Gonna be an interesting evening.

Wow! Must be a heavy wet snow

Just drove to my doctor across town. Interstates are fine, all other roads are slushy. My parking lot is a mess. Radar looks to be filling in to the West. This is a very wet, low-ratio snow which explains the relatively low accumulation. 32.4°F.

Up to 3" on the balcony. One more band is about to move through so that may add another half inch or so.

The airport got more.

Finished with 3.4" on the balcony, which lines up pretty decently with what looks like will be the airport's final tally at 3.5".

The plus side to this being low ratio goop is the fact that slightly above freezing temps won't do much to this snowpack tomorrow.

Flash freezing is going to be a major issue tonight. There has to be 2" of slush on my parking lot, if not more, as well as a lot of ponding of water. Side streets are not much better. Forecasted lows are in the low 20s.

MSP with a record setting 7.9"!!!  Congrats on everyone who scored Bigly with this storm system.  I guess those juiced up totals ended up coming into fruition and the Kuchera snow maps did well with the snow ratios.  BTW, what were the snow ratios like???  Take some pics today with the sun shining down on a fresh snow pack and leaves on the trees.

Thanks Jaster! Not planned at all. Life is full of coincidences. 
 

Ended with 6.75” here. I’m hoping a bit of the snow melts today if we’re going to get a bunch of rain tomorrow. The snow is like cement and will likely block the drains and sewers. Don’t need hydro issues in October.

The models overall did a pretty amazing job with this storm. We can only hope this starts a trend of good modeling for the rest of the season. The only ones that didn't do well were the rapid refresh models up until the storm was underway. The RAP and HRRR were showing 2-4" totals here even as the snow starting falling.

Yeah, they nailed amounts up here as well.

I wish my 40 year old otherwise healthy friend and my 90 year old grandma who was supposedly safe in a locked down nursing home could say the same. But they're both dead from COVID.

I'm truly sorry to hear this. I understand times very well and deeply now when everything hurts.. My heart goes out to you for your loss.

But, I'll say with all my heart, as someone who has went through mighty adversity over the last 3 years (as many are today as well); circumstance, nor my inadequacies and faults, liars and fearmongers, death, covid, the law, government or man's desire, opinion, or anything else never changed who God was, is, or will be.

I appreciate the nice words, but there is no God or Jesus or whatever other imaginary invisible being you guys believe in. Think how disgusting an idea it is to believe that there is a being that just as one example, allows 220k people in just this country (1 million plus worldwide) die from a pandemic, the vast majority a slow, painful, inhumane death, and then when someone lives or makes a miraculous comeback, try to give credit to that imaginary thing for saving that life. Even worse when someone dies or lives, claim it's all "part of the plan" and to "trust him" or whatever other garbage response religion comes up with.

At any rate, religion is a topic for another board.

I'd think crapping on other people's religion is more frowned upon than what Madtown said.

I'm atheist.

I'm sorry for your losses. Don't use that as an excuse to be hostile towards well-meaning people.
